Boil shells according to package directions.

While pasta is being prepared, brown ground beef and drain fat. Stir in package of taco seasoning and water. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.

The black beans really enhance this recipe - adding extra flavor, texture and protein.
